Ginger Pudding

Tasting even better than it looks, Sticky Ginger Pudding is perfect for the holidays—although we wouldn’t turn it away on a blazing August afternoon.

WHAT IT IS: Classic British puddings—moist cakes with sauces.
WHY IT’S DIFFERENT: Try to find something this meltingly good that you can serve warm from the microwave in 40 seconds. It’s better comfort food than a traditional cake.
WHY WE LOVE IT: The individual servings are a divine treat, ready in 30 seconds. You can split one with someone you love, and dinner parties couldn’t be easier (everyone can have his or her favorite flavor). Stick a candle on top for birthdays!
WHERE TO BUY IT: and fine food stores nationwide (in the refrigerator case). See store locator on website

Pudding Flavors

These hard-to-resist, handmade desserts from the Sticky Toffee Pudding Company are authentically British in concept—they’re even baked in traditional basins (cups) imported from the U.K., although the are made with the finest local ingredients (even the lemon juice is Texan).

Each pudding contains a small amount of sauce. Meant to be served warm (although delicious cold and at room temperature), they melt in the mouth. In alphabetical order, the current selection includes:

English Lemon Pudding
With Tart Lemon Sauce

This light and moist lemon cake, made from butter, sugar, unbleached flour, eggs, fresh lemon zest and juice, baking powder and salt, is a perfect lemon dessert. Even at the end of a large dinner, when everyone has that stuffed feeling, it’s a welcome choice. The recipe, a moist butter sponge, was adapted from the popular lemon-curd layer cakes that Tracy sells at the Austin Farmers Market 

Garnish With:  Whipped cream or crème fraîche, plus a bit of fresh-grated lemon zest. For a more elaborate presentation, add fresh berries or candied citrus peel. For more pomp, add a scoop of vanilla or fruit-flavored ice cream (strawberry, black raspberry or whatever you can find or have time to make).

Molten Chocolate Cake

The Molten Chocolate Baby-Cake.

Molten Chocolate Baby-Cake
(Lava Cake)

The classic lava cake, made with fine dark chocolate from Venezuela, butter, sugar, eggs, flour, vanilla and espresso. Here, the sauce is provided by the molten “lava” center (photo at left). This cake, and related recipes, are always crowd pleasers, and normally we’d say “order to your heart’s delight.” But to do so would be to overlook the lesser-known recipes which to us are even more exciting.

Garnish With: Whipped cream or crème fraîche and seasonal berries. If it’s a birthday or other celebration, stick a candle in the top and serve with ice cream. Vanilla is an easy choice, but coffee or espresso ice cream is particularly exciting with the rich, dark chocolate flavors.
